New hope for the VA

Build it and they will come

That's not just a shiny new outpatient clinic the state's Veterans Healthcare System has built in Mena but a shining example of how to provide health care for Arkansas' veterans. Instead of outsourcing vets' care to contractors who specialize in operating hospitals, the clinic at Mena will be run directly by employees of the Department of Veterans Affairs.

wonderful news. but i do have a question who let our VA get in such a horrible state where employees were lying and fixing the books to show no waiting lines??? it wasn't joe citizen who cares deeply for our vets. and honors them every chance we get. so how do the VA get so corrupt in the first place ?
